So today I want to check out the SATREND A10 which is a Mini Card Phone! It comes with a 1.77 inch Display and 480mAh battery. It’s a very tiny phone that still feels very quality and has a unique look.
It’s a Metal bluetooth mini card cell phone. It’s as big as a credit card and feels great in the hand. It both support Standard SIM card + Micro SIM card. Or Standard SIM card + SD card. It has a 3.5mm headphone jack. It can also make calls via bluetooth by binding it to your smartphone. Both dial up and answer calls.
You can also remotely take a photography over bluetooth. Then you first need to install an app on your other phone. I will try this feature to see how it works. It also has an MP3 player but no default songs. Need an SD card in the phone to be able to use this. You also get a business leather while buying this phone. But it doesn’t seem to stick to the phone that well. Works mostly as protection.
It’s around 8mm thick, 90mm tall and 50mm wide. It doesn’t have any games installed. But it does have a physical keyboard. Dial and Hang up coloured buttons. You have a charging port at the bottom of the phone. On the back you have the text digital sound. And the logo feels nice.
The phone has an expensive premium feel. It’s hard to tell the price of it just by looking at it. It will for sure make people curious what it is you are having. This phone comes in 4 colors, pink, black, grey, and almost gold like colour. It also comes with a charging cable, a pin for taking out the SD card/SIM card tray.
Be sure to let me know what kind of tests you want me to do on this device. It’s CPU is MTK6261D, Memory is 32MB+32MB, Screen Resolution is 480×320 pixels.
In these times it’s very popular that the phones just keeps getting bigger. There was a time when 4.3″ was considered big. But now not even 5″ is big. So it’s nice to see some companies are going back to produce compact sized phones! If you want to check out this device then it’s available here for purchase.
So my new Samsung Galaxy S8 has already started to get problems with AMOLED screen burn. Here is some quick pictures on it. It’s extremely annoying and sad. I only been using the Galaxy S8 for a few months and already the display is starting to turn faulty. I kinda was expecting more from Samsung. But they have had lots of issues the last couple of years with things like this. So sad. Click on the photos for full screen mode on some that I took with my Sony camera.
And here is also I quick video I did on Galaxy S7 to show it!
Today I want to check out an extremely cool game in the Google Play Store it’s called MONZO. It basically allows you to build various digital model kits! You can also paint them, put stickers on them, take a photo and share your models you have built. This is an app that is created in Unity.
The game starts off with a tutorial first you tap on a sports car model kit box to open it. Then when you open it you see all the parts and you tap inside to start assembly. After that you open the manual by dragging it out in the center and follow the step-by-step instructions. On the left side of the screen you have your inventory of pieces and you start to drag the first piece from the inventory and drop it into the scene. Everything is working with smooth graphics. You can observe the model you put out on scene by swiping on it. You can pinch to zoom in or out. Two finger swipe will pan the model to left or right. Double tap will reset the camera.
On the left side where your inventory of model pieces are you can swipe up or down to see more. Now you just watch the manual on right side of the screen and select parts and start to build up the model. It’s very interesting to see how the parts come together to create a complete model! You can also see with ease when a piece is matching and should be at a certain place.
After you have completed the model you can paint it or use stickers. Then you can take a photo of your model. Which will be saved in your photo library in the game.
Inside of the main menu of the game you have the Store, My Collection, Tips & Tricks, My photos and Build! You also have the settings button where you can change language, Music, Sound, Invert X/Y Axis or Tweak Sensitivity X/Y. The app has around 40 different models you can build. A bunch of free ones but also many that cost up to 5 euros. But some of them have 70 to 300 pieces so some might be worth it. I like the app and it’s fun to build stuff but I wished they had more models than just 40. Up to 300 at least would be a bit more fun.
And I also wished they had some time limit for extra challenge. Where you should be able to do it as quickly as possible and get between 1 to 5 stars. It feels like it’s a little to easy sometimes to build up a new model. But the graphics and sound is really great. And I like how they have cool models you can build up like a weapon or a tank. Even a helicopter and a dinosaur! It gives you a deeper insight in how an animal or a machine is built up. Or it would be cool if users could generate their own advanced models that others could built up. You also gain experience in the game while you finish a model.
If you have google cardboard then you can also view your built models in them which is an extremely cool feature! You can also tap on highlighted parts to play an animation of them. After you have finished a model you can also quickly disassemble it if you want. The price for some models might seem expensive. But once you start get into it and building it you see the quality put into this app. And you get real enjoyment out of doing something creative. Almost as in real life!
I rather have premium app like this instead of an app with annoying in-ads that just makes you annoyed. Do you know any other cool quality app that you want me to check out? I am currently exploring real quality apps. That is fun to pick up fast and enjoy. Have an awesome day and thanks for reading. Here is the app again in the play store.
Hi there! So I wanted to start a new blog post series where I showcase my phones! I have been collecting phones since 2011. Starting with the Samsung Galaxy S2 that I bought for my own money. I want to go over my massive stack of phones and show them to you over here. First one I wanna start with will be the BlackBerry Priv! I will just randomly select a phone from time to time and just talk about it a little bit. Hopefully you will enjoy. It will be an unique series here on my website. Something than nobody else ever has done before.
This phone is having a large 5.4″ display with screen resolution of 1440×2560. A high 540 pixel density. Gorilla Glass 4 protection and a slight curved edge screen. The operating system is Android which is interesting because usually blackberry is using their own BlackBerry OS. But this phone with Android works with all the standard Android apps. It comes with Snapdragon 808 chipset and a Hexa-core 4×1.4GHz Cortex-A53 and 2×1.8GHz Cortex-A57 processor. The GPU is Adreno 418.
Here are some photos on my BlackBerry Priv!
It also has option for microSD card slot of 256GB. And internal storage of 32GB with 3GB of RAM. The primary camera is 18MP f/2.2 and secondary is 2MP, 720p. The battery is 3410mAh battery.
The phone also has a full qwerty keyboard that you can see when you slide up the screen. So you can decide if you want to use the physical keyboard or the Android on-screen keyboard. The phone comes with a matte plastic back feel. The only main disadvantage is that it doesn’t have a removable battery option. But most high end phones 2017 doesn’t have a removable battery.
Some have also complained that the plastic back on this phone makes it feel cheap for being a BlackBerry phone. I have to say that I don’t agree. I think it still feels very premium and also that plastic is a better material to use on the back than for example Samsung Galaxy S8’s glass back. And the new iPhone 8 that also will use glass back. Even LG have started to use glass back with LG G6. The problem with glass is it breaks easily and it creates ugly fingerprint marks on the back. And if it breaks it will be expensive to replace. Plastic usually won’t break. It’s made with more thinking about durability.
This phone has a bit of that business feel to it that BlackBerry phones usually have. It will surely stand out even in 2017 because most phones aren’t qwerty sliders these days. But I think it looks extremely look and people who want a niche phone to stand out 2017 this is the one still. Samsung Galaxy Note 8 might be another good niche phone because it’s the only high end device with good stylus support.
